Hi, I’m Cindy Briolotta, and I’ve helped thousands of people to reach their goals, develop their full potential, and live lives of freedom and joy. 

 

I am a hypnotist, NLP practitioner and Law of Attraction coach.  I first became interested in hypnosis when I was in college and I participated in a psychology experiment that involved being hypnotized.  During the experiment, the hypnotist demonstrated some very cool hypnotic phenomena, and I really enjoyed the experience.  And I thought, “I want to learn how to do that someday.” 

 

At the time I didn’t know that people practiced hypnotism as a profession because like most people, all I knew about it was what I had seen in movies.   So, I promptly forgot all about it and went on with my life.  From time to time during the years I would see an ad for a hypnosis training, and I would say, “I’m going to learn how to do that some day.”

 

I also used hypnosis in my own life to help me make some changes, and I always had great success with it, and enjoyed the experience very much.

 

Then one day, in 1999, I saw an ad for a hypnosis training, and instead of saying, “I’m going to learn how to do that one day,” I picked up the phone and called the teacher and said, “I want to register for your class.” 

 

So, I went to the training, and I had an experience that I had been waiting for my whole adult working life.  I had such an incredible “Aha!” moment where I realized that this is what I’m supposed to be doing with my life.  I still get chills when I think about it.  I absolutely fell in love with hypnosis.  I started taking every training I could find, reading scores of books, and learning tons of stuff about rapid change technologies, and it was fun, fun, fun. 

 

I still kept my day job, and I started seeing clients part time at a hypnosis clinic.  I had a plan.  I was going to keep my job for 5 years, and gradually build my private practice to the point where it could replace my income.  Then 9/11 happened, and I got downsized from my job.  And despite the fact that I had never had any trouble finding a job in the past, I just couldn’t find one at that time.  So I thought that “the Universe” was letting me know that it was time to get serious about the work that I was meant to do.

 

Around that time, I found Lynn Grabhorn’s book, Excuse Me, Your Life is Waiting.  I had read the Seth books years before and found them fascinating, I read the Conversations with God books and loved them, but the message hadn’t really penetrated.  I read the words, “you create your own life,” but I really didn’t “get” it on a deep level.  And to be honest, even when I read Excuse Me, Your Life is Waiting, I still didn’t recognize the enormity of what I was learning.  But I did practice some of the techniques in the book because they were interesting and fun.

 

Then I started reading more and more on the subject, and finally, I saw an email announcing a Law of Attraction coaching certification program and I signed up for the course. That was when I started really immersing myself in the law of attraction principles, and living them in my own life.

 

The more I studied law of attraction, the more I saw the parallels with what I already knew.  The teachings of the law of attraction are amazingly similar to what I’d been doing with my clients for years.  I had been explaining the deliberate creation process in terms of how our minds work: activating neural networks in our brains, the nature of sustained motivation, and so on.  As I studied the Law of Attraction, I learned the underlying spiritual principles that drive creation.

 

So I decided to combine these incredibly powerful technologies to help my clients experience even greater levels of success.  And the results have been amazing.

 

It’s a perfect partnership.  As students of the Law of Attraction and the science of deliberate creation we know that the creation process is straightforward:

 

1. As you are living your daily life, you experience contrast.  The contrast produces a desire within you for things to be different (this is often called the asking step in the Law of Attraction literature).  This part of the process is easy, it is happening automatically all the time.  Of course there are some ways of asking for what you want that will accelerate your results. I’ve been doing those things with my hypnosis clients for years, things like visualizing; acting as if, speaking as though what you want is already true for you and so on. 

 

2. Next, the universe expands as a result of your desire, your inner being expands. This step is often called, it is given, or the answer step; and the answer is always, “Yes.”  If you have the desire to manifest something, you can have it.  (It is said that you are incapable of having a desire that cannot be fulfilled.)

 

The final step is allowing, and this is where it gets interesting.  Allowing is theoretically simple; just get yourself into alignment with what you want and it will flow to you.  You’re going to feel joyful when you get what you want, so right now dwell in joy.  Believe that you can have what you want and that you deserve it.  Take inspired action in the direction of your dreams. That’s it, that’s the whole formula.

 

Simple.

 

Simple, but, most of us find this step less than easy. 

 

The question that Abraham asks here is “Are you letting yourself experience the benefit of your precious focus and your vast experience in the here and now?”

 

Unfortunately, many times, the answer to that question is, “No.” Because we all have at least some resistance to what we want.

 

Of course, it doesn’t make logical sense to resist what we most want, but it doesn’t have to, because logic is a function of the conscious mind. For the most part the things that hold us back are unconscious. For example, many of us have limiting beliefs about what is possible for us, what we deserve, how much it is safe for us to have and so on. We may also have habitual ways of feeling based on past experience that keep us from resonating with the joy that accelerates our ability to manifest the things that would make us even more joyful.  And many of us have behavioral patterns that are self-sabotaging rather than self-empowering.

 

So why don’t we just eliminate all of these negatives and embrace the abundance that is our birthright? 

 

Because, they have become a part of our unconscious programming.

 

You know, our brains, our unconscious minds, are magnificent.  Anything that we practice sufficiently, becomes automatic for us so that we don’t have to think about it any more.  All of this happens without any critical judgment at all.  The assumption is that if you do something regularly, it must be important, so it becomes automatic – we call that learning, and that’s a good thing.  Just like tying your shoes or driving a car, when you first learned to do those things they were very complex, now you do them without thinking.  The challenge for most of us is that we have automated as many counter-productive thought, feeling, and behavioral habits as useful ones.

 

So, what’s the solution?

 

That’s where hypnosis, NLP, and other remarkable mind technologies come in. With these potent tools you can go to the source and create transformations on a fundamental level.  You can release old limiting emotions, transform limiting beliefs into the empowering knowledge that you can be, do and have whatever you want, replace dysfunctional habits that don’t serve you with ones that propel you forward, and imprint success programs deep in your inner mind.

 

By combining law of attraction principles with powerful clearing and reprogramming methodologies, you can turbo-charge your results and manifest faster and more easily than you ever thought possible.

 

I have been using the strategies and techniques of rapid change in my own life, as well as with my clients, so I know first hand how transformational they are.

 

I love what I do and I am grateful for the opportunity to live my mission and purpose and passion, by helping you to get everything that you want from life.

 

Peter Drucker said, “The best way to predict the future is to create it.” I’d be honored to help you create yours.

 

Looking forward to magnificent co-creation,

 

Cindy
